ObamaNation: Rating Colleges Based on Immorality

Now that over two-thirds of all college students receive a total of $150 billion annually from the federal government, averaging over $10,000 per student per year, the stage is set for a totalitarian-minded U.S. president to dictate all public AND PRIVATE "higher education" curricula via a national rating system that will control which college's students are allowed to draw from the federal spigot.

The nation is facing a crisis in terms of college affordability and student debt, President Obama said Thursday as he unveiled a set of new federal education initiatives, some of which he can launch without the help of Congress.

Mr. Obama is directing Education Secretary Arne Duncan to create the ratings system, with public input, before the start of the 2015 school year.

White House officials said the Department of Education is engaging with the education sector to develop the ratings system and is working carefully to ensure the system doesn't favor certain institutions or create the wrong incentives.

“Many more campuses today want to be called LGBT-friendly but only those who participate in the Campus Pride Index know what policies, programs and practices are important to create safer, more LGBT-friendly colleges and universities,” said Shane Windmeyer, executive director of Campus Pride.

“The index also grew for the seventh consecutive year to over 380+ colleges and universities, representing both 2 year and 4 institutions,” the group said.

The University of Oregon is the only institution in the state to offer Queer Studies as a minor in their Department of Women’s and Gender Studies.

Macalester College, a private undergraduate liberal arts college in St. Paul, Minn., has what they call “all gender bathrooms” on campus.

The University of Massachusetts, Amherst has the first LGBTQA floor to be established on a college campus. “The floor includes gender-inclusive rooms for transgender students and an informally gender-inclusive bathroom,” its website said.

From "Obama targets high cost of college" by Tracy Jan, Boston Globe Staff 8/23/13

Under Obama’s plan, the federal government would develop a report card by 2015 for all public and private colleges that would measure tuition increases, graduation rates, student debt, and even graduates’ earnings to help students pick schools that offer the best value.

It remains to be seen whether Obama’s plan will go far enough in addressing the multiple reasons college costs have risen so dramatically, a problem schools, students, and parents, as well as the government, are complicit in . . .

“President Obama needs to realize that not every problem can be solved by giving more power to Washington bureaucrats,” said [Sen. Marco] Rubio . . .
